My husband informed me this morning that I don’t handle stress very well.
Where ever did he get that idea?
I have 2 doctor appointments in a neighboring big city tomorrow, and he was asking if I needed him to come along. What a sweetheart.
Maybe he could pitch-hit for the yearly test I’m suppose to have, but have avoided for too long. The nurse at my practicioner’s office must be German. She’s stubborn, strong-willed, and doesn’t take no for an answer. After several visits of her asking, and my excuses, she pulled a ringer on me. She handed me a ‘coupon’ for a free mammogram…appointment already set.
Who can not make use of a freebie?
Hubby’s right. I don’t handle stress too well. I use to think I did a decent job of forging ahead. I did things anyway, even though they were stressful. I just didn’t realize the way handling stress affected me. I guess others had a better vantage point in that area.
My other appointment is for a hearing test. Another age-appropriate condition in need of addressing. I’m not worried about this one. I already know my hearing is on the fritz. I have found that giving the I-can’t-hear-you blank stare has proven useful as an effective stress management technique on more than one occasion!
